Best Ollakunle Campbell Poems

+ Fav Poet


The sound came suddenly but sharply
Odum had started beating his drums
Telling all it is time 
With a rush, Awili began sweeping wildly
Spreading the dirt as far away as he could reach
Heralding his coming is alway with a ceremony
Sending all with a rush
Thus making shouts and yells a common course
Again Amen has come 
With all her splendour
Graced with a million sticks 
To pierce the soil

It must be today said l 
An outstretched limb of awili
Went over my back
Sparkling up a nostalgia 
To the yearning of decades

The ritual must be today
The call must be yielded 
With a bow
My robe was loosen
And out with dudu i stepped
Cloaked only in natures’ suit

    I'm all for dudu (banana stew?) anytime though my friends seem to relish foofoo! And a million sticks to pierce the soil- hoes! Great read.
